Sumitomo HTRZ II

What are yalls opinions on the Sumitomo HTRZ II's? Why are they so much cheaper than any other brand tires? Btw I'm running 275/40/18 all around.

I have them on my car currently..... They last forever, i've had mine 2 years and put them through many auto crosses and a track day and about 9,000 other miles. In terms of tread depth they still look new...

In terms of performance they are garbage. 255whp with 4.10s and car weight of 3485 pounds with me in it i can roast the back tires shifting into 2nd gear.

So basically a good all around everyday driver tire but just now as "sticky" as some of the more expensive tires?

You can get sticky tires for fairly cheap. All depends on the style. But you sacrifice longetivety and how well they do in sub-par weather.

$500 for all around is pretty damn good. My next set of tires will probably cost me $1200 give or take.

Bullitts are better than Bullets
